    If you had just one chance to go back in time, would you take it?

    A chance was given to you to go back in time just once, to either change something, meet someone, live in a certain time, or just relive a certain event in your life or someone else's.  What would you do?  Where would you go and why?

    Yes, I will take the chance to change my life. There are lots of choices in our life. After we make the decision, then we will know whether it is wrong or not. I found that for some decisions, I really made wrong..... I want to change them.

    No. I thought about it, but I realized that with all of the bad things that had happened to me and no matter how much I wanted to change them, It's really not worth having to rebuild relationships with people and rework problems in your life. There is so much that I would like to change, but I just do not see a better outcome in it.

    I would in a heartbeat.  I love my life, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't jump at the chance to do it over.

    If I could go back in time I'd go back to a time when there was no electricity, no guns, and lots and lots of trees.  And I would live out my days there in complete happiness.

    Of course, you have to ask the question of, if I went back would I still have my memories?  If you didn't, wouldn't you just make the same choices based upon the same circumstances that you did before?  If you don't have your memories, aren't you just fulfilling fate, destiny, a pre-set plan?

    How would you change it if you didn't know what to change?

    Which is why I would choose to go back to a time where there was nothing that I could relate to, so that if I can't take my memories with me, I can at least escape repeating myself for all eternity.

    YES.  I love my life, even with the good, bad and the ugly, however,  I would make greater use of the moments along the way.
